Every wonder about all the homes you drive past near Founder's Hall? or the big castle looking structure on the hill behind the Hotel Hershey? Founder's Hall is your place to stop if you are interested in the history of the School and the legend and legacy of the Hershey Trust. Milton Hershey was an amazing individual who gave of himself to his company and community. He left his entire fortune to the school which continues to thrive today with students from all over the country from low income and social status. The structure and architecture of the building is beautiful. When you enter, go to the information desk where someone there will guide through various points in the building and provide a history of what functions occur at the school. Our guide was a former graduate of the school from 1957, an orphaned boy, who returned to the school and foundation to give his time and love back to the people of Hershey. You will learn of the early days of the school through a short video, as well as current facilities, students and host parenting, and activites through other short videos around the rotunda. This is an awe inspiring look into the history of Hershey.
